Beroglide, the drug O'Hara uses on Jack, doesn't exist in real life. See more »

Goofs

It is unlikely that Jack could be up and around, killing bad guys about 20 minutes after his heart stopped. The torture alone would put anyone in a bind for a while. See more »

The conspiracy deepens
1 July 2008 | by MaxBorg89See all my reviews

Five episodes left, and still no sign of an easy solution to the many problems the main characters of the show are facing. Hell, the previous show ended with Jack Bauer flat-lining while he was being tortured. How's that for unexpected complications?

Predictably, the torturers try to revive Jack. Naturally, he manages to escape and continue his pursuit of the proof President Palmer needs to stop an unjustified war. First, though, he needs to get the memory chip some random people stole from Kate, and he better act quickly, since Palmer is beginning to sense something is wrong and Prescott is doing everything in his power, including locking up Presidential aide Lynne Kresge (Michelle Forbes), to prevent the President from finding out about the conspiracy ahead of time. Things don't go too well at CTU either, with Division chief Ryan Chappelle (Paul Schulze) making an unwelcome return and doing all kinds of things to be perceived as a pain in the ass.

Every season of 24 appears to follow a set structure: Jack is informed of a new threat; threat is avoided; those behind the menace are pursued; some unexpected truth is revealed, and Jack has only a few hours to convince his superiors his way is the right way. As of Episode 20, we have reached that last stage in Season 2: Jack knows American businessmen organized the creation of the Cyprus recording (and the audience knows that as well), and now all that stands between him and avoiding an unnecessary conflict is... well, everything, basically. Man, they just won't leave him alone, will they?
